Week 111: Lord’s and Australia

The notable feature at the start of the week was attending my first Darwin College Students Association General Meeting. I attended to ensure that the cricket club would get funding for next season, and the meeting needed a quorum of 70(!) students to approve motions including the budget.

Week 98: BBC Proms Weekend 5 (Part 1)

After work on Monday, I went to collect my cricket whites one last time for the summer. Darwin College had made the final of the MCR cricket league.

Week 90: A Week of Sport

My calculations continued throughout the week, reaching some rather pleasing conclusions of the calculations I was doing. My focus would now turn to some hopefully illuminating visual plots. After work, Annalise had invited a host of her friends from Gates, department and college to meet up with her for her birthday not-a-birthday dinner.

Week 32: Elections and Trinity Hall Formal

The week began with a rejuvenated spirit following my trip to Yorkshire. As per usual, the weekdays were filled with the usual schedule of working, lunch, seminars and dinners, but I was working on producing a calculation rather than reading papers, which spurred me on a little. In particular, I was looking at trying to… Continue reading Week 32: Elections and Trinity Hall Formal

Week 22: Closing the Chapter (hopefully)

Most of my simulations finished on Monday morning, but some took days longer to complete. In the meantime, I tried investigating a point one of the referees had commented on to see if I could reconcile my results with some results from other works. I tried writing a script to plot the results, and when… Continue reading Week 22: Closing the Chapter (hopefully)
